Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Long-tailed, long-legged bird with bold head and chest markings. Elusive and shy; unlikely to be seen by those not searching for it. Found in a small portion of Madagascar’s southwestern spiny forest, at low elevation on sandy soils. Feeds on the ground, avoiding disturbance by running away. Song is a high, short “tuk” note delivered in a quick series. Unmistakable within its tiny range.
